The Constance Shawl is inspired by the 1945 Hitchcock movie Spellbound. It contains snowflakes because of the fateful skiing trip, and parallel lines for the lines that frighten Dr. Edwardes.

The red line comes from the fact that Spellbound was filmed in black and white, except for one or two frames of bright red at the conclusion, when a gun is fired into the camera.

Finished (blocked) measurements
Small: Wingspan: 48” / 122cm Depth: 14.5” / 37cm
Medium: Wingspan: 55” / 140cm Depth: 15.75” / 40cm
Large: Wingspan: 62.25” / 1585cm Depth: 17” / 43cm

The shawl uses 1 (2, 2) skeins of the main color and about 15 m of the contrast color.
